Career to date:

Ann Jobson was a widow of independent means who used her wealth to support many charitable ventures. In 1861 she took the unusual step for a woman of attending a public meeting of the Liff and Benvie Parochial Board in order to vote in favour of altering the means of assessment of the poor.[5]

More information

Ann Jobson married Robert Jobson Jnr. of Longforgan in 1835 and, sadly, was widowed two years later.

She was evidently a keen gardener. After the death of William Gardiner, the Dundee botanist, she subscribed to the fund set up for his son and in later years the Crawford Lodge gardener successfully competed in Dundee Flower Show.

Ann Jobson and her sisters subscribed to many charitable causes. After her death she left legacies to Dundee Royal Infirmary, Dundee Female Society, Indigent Sick Society, Mission Work of St Paul’s Free Church Dundee, The Foreign Missions of the Free Church of Scotland, Free Church of Scotland Jewish Missions, Dundee Clothing Society and the Gaelic School Society.

Anne[1] was also known as Ann.[2]
